Drawing on the declaration "All artists borrow, great artists steal" this studio-based course explores the diverse ways in which artists have drawn on influences from one another, from other times, and other cultures. This is a studio-based course supplemented by lectures and seminars exploring interesting examples of cross-fertilisation throughout history and contemporary art practice. In the studio students will explore the work of artists of as a means of enriching their own practice and research.

- demonstrate an active engagement with concepts and processes, drawn from historical and/or contemporary precedents;
- apply skills and knowledge to the development of research interests;
- critically reflect on how ideas and process generate meaning and affect; and
- demonstrate creative, critical, and reflective engagement with course content and independent research.
